Went as part of the annual dine around event in Halifax. Menu selection is quite large with pasta, beef, pork and fish dishes being offered. Atmosphere is great in an old historic building. Great place for romantic to family dining in an upscale restaurant. Large wine selection. Calamari is delicious here. 4 diners - 4 different meals. All were very... More

One of the oldest and most chic restaurants in Halifax. If you want to impress your customer or for a romantic evening, this is for you. Don't rush it. Service is professional and courteous. Expensive but it is fine dining. Sometimes doesn't require a reservation but getting one is better.

This is one of my family's favourite restaurants. The servers are friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is warm and not noisy. The menu is a good combination of Italian and other European origins and some with a Nova Scotia twist. There is something for meat lovers and something for vegetarians. Food quality is great and fresh and even a simple... More

We were recommended to go here by friends who used to live in Halifax and it did not disappoint. We were lucky to go in the summer when the weather was hot and sunny and were given a seat outside. It was beautiful sitting there, watching the sunset. Food was delicious.

This is a great place to go if you like Italian cuisine, especially of the creamier northern variety. Superb food that always meets a high standard, and service that is very professional and friendly. The only criticism I would have is that the bar is not very well stocked for cocktails. Expect only basics there. But everything else was (and... More

This place is not trying too hard to be romantic- but it really is. I'm the kind of person who enjoys a dinner without having to shout across the table to have a conversation with my partner. I enjoy the fact that it's an older crowd here. The plates are rich and heavy for the most part, so skip out... More

We have been patronising this restaurant for several years. We went there 4 years in a raw for new years eve and we go there few times there during spring/summer. The owner/hostess is very friendly and welcoming when you arrive then you never see her. However we do not feel that they really appreciate our business. All these years we... More

I recently went to Da Maurizio for a birthday dinner. It was the first time I went there but I have always heard great things. I am not the biggest fan of Italian, particularly pasta, but I went to the restaurant with an open mind. First off, the atmosphere is nice and romantic. The lighting is dim and the decor... More
